. he kind of cleaned john boehner squat in terms of taxes and revenues. it was all tax increases. $15 million in spending cuts. republicans have to get their acts together to negotiate better on the debt ceiling and other things. neil: what is the overture on the republican party? saying that they are going to push for a three-month extension? >> sure, what i read in it was from a pr standpoint in saying that gets all is a bad idea and will hurt the economy. and for economy a year and a half ago. republicans are saying that maybe it's a smart move in the sense that they want to say enough of this pr stunt. let's take the falls off the table but let's get to the real essence of spending cuts. the president is going to keep coming back. but it's more revenue. but it's more tax increases. we knew th in the campaign. neil: there is this paraphrase between the rich and the poor that you alluded to. maybe he has not done this. >> i don't think he is done on more tax increases. neil: more deductions? >> deductions anperhaps more rate hikes. this was alluded to during the fiscal cliff talks b

engineering. so when john boehner comes together with his plan b in december, there's no unanimity or consensus in the republican party about that. i think the gop has to get its own house in order. >> they're all screwed up. that's what i'm saying. >> but they're the ones who talk about spending cuts -- >> base is going to -- >> you know the base of the republican party better than i do but i think the republican base doesn't have anywhere to go. >> they go home to sleep. they can watch tv. they can watch a sporting event. they can have a couple of beers. believe me. you're seeing the base. you ever see what they look like? i'm sorry. >> you said that. not me. >> i didn't say that. matt welch, you're kind of a neutral observer in this whole story. >> kind of. >> let me get your take on this. do you think the gop's getting the message out? >> i think it was shrewd politically what they did today. >> okay. >> they put democrats on the defensive. they shined a light on the fact they haven't passed a budget in 1,360 days and said hey if you want to be -- we don't want to be the irresp
before the inauguration the latest nbc wall street journal poll is out with the breaking news. john harwood in washington. john? >> tyler, we've just got one question. the full poll comes out tonight but this shows you some of the difficulty president obama is going to face with this gun control issue he's pursuing. look at the public image of the national rifle association. it shows you it's a pretty tough target. at three different decision points after tragedies, columbine they had a net negative rating. at the giffords shooting it was better in early 2011 and after newtown it is not much worse, 41% positive, 34% negative. that's not bad as they set out to fight what the president is planning to do. when you compare that to the entertainment industry and hollywood, which is a target some republicans are urging to focus on because of the violence in movies and video games, two to one negative for hollywood and the entertainment industry. it grates people on the coast and on the left, not as unpopular as hollywood is. that represents a bit of a hurtle for the president, tyler and s
companies pay less attention to shareholders? whole foods c.e.o. john mackey joins us. >> susie: that and more tonight on "n.b.r." many american companies are gearing up to go public and investors are warming up to the idea of buying those shares. the success of the initial public offering of norwegian cruise lines on the nasdaq today could kick off a new wave of i.p.o.s. shares of the third largest cruise line operator in the u.s., skyrocketed more than 30%, from its $19 opening price. as erika miller reports, thanks to the bullish run in the stock market it could be full steam ahead for i.p.o.s. >> reporter: although 2012 was not exactly a banner year for initial public offerings, investment bankers expect things to improve this year. 8% of capital markets executives think there will be a substantial gain. 42% see a modest increase. but still one in five expect fewer companies to go public. this is according to a recent survey by consulting firm b.d.o. for i.p.o.s, much depends on what happens to the u.s. stock market. >> the i.p.o. market is very schizophrenic. the window for
john mackey joins us as we talk groceries. >>> later, how is your poker face? some women in business are unleashing their inner cardsharp as they're facing off. that's no bluff as we take a look at how the stock market ended the week. >>> i think that would be a grave mistake. i don't think that would solve anything. i know they're going to try it, and how far they will go with that game of chicken, i have no idea. >> one thing the public should understand is we're not afraid of anyone, we're not afraid to bring any kind of case against nino matter how big they are, how wealthy they are or how prominent they are. sometimes it takes a while to build those cases. >> too often the debate becomes so simplistic. don't drink soda and somehow the ebeastie city will go away. we know we haven't. but we want to be part of the solution. >> part of the conversation world n. world today, business and politics this week, a healthy lifestyle is part of the mission. and business outlook of my next guest, john mackey is the co-ceo and co-founder of whole foods as well as the author of "conscious capi
's get a peek at the friday trade with john brady of rjo'brien. good morning, and the s&p 500 above a five-year high, john. can this last? what could hold it back? > > i think it is going to continue to last, and the reason is that the asset markets are moving in such a way where investors i think are just at the beginning part of selling bond funds and selling bonds to buy riskier assets in s&ps and s&p futures. so, for example, consider this: at 182 yield on the 10-year note, investors are paying about 54 times the coupon they will receive over the next 10 years, where if they go and buy the s&p 500, they are paying about 14 times future earnings. so stocks still look cheap to overpriced treasuries. > so do you expect that that treasury tumble will continue on as that rotation happens and money goes into stocks? > i do. you know, we have division among fed members as it relates to the length and duration of q/e number four. likewise on thursday we saw a big tumble in european interest rates as european interest rates had to reprice on an ecb that has now moved to the sidelines. so
, things that have been down in the past." as for jobs, john challenger says though the economy has been adding an average of 150,000 jobs a month, we may not need that many to make unemployment itself go down. the reason - baby boomers. "there are many more baby boomers retiring, so we don't need nearly as many new jobs as we did a decade ago." as for overseas trade, china's economy is predicted to grow at 7%. it used to be 15%. "hu jintao's approach was 'build the middle class.' i don't know if the next leader will make that his goal." and in europe, observers think the worst is over, but the first half of the year will be slow. "they're going to make progress, but not enough to change much. what they need is private equity, private investment." finally, investing in community or regional banks - an alternative that may surprise you. "you can invest in small banks and help your community. if enough people do that, the country will improve." lastly, financial analysts say the ipo calendar will be worth tracking in 2013. with roughly 150 private companies ready to make their initial publ
shares. google right now is down 3 bucks on the trading session. john is in silicon valley with what investor s need to know ahead of the numbers. >> couple of important themes this quarter, mobile and mobile. mobile's impacted on the core business. as more people do searches from mobile devices, google's revenue has been coming down. it's more than likely this trend will continue as smartphone and tablet sales spike. cbc could come down 11%. it was down 15% last quarter. then we have the nexus 7 and nexts 10 tablets. in q3, some analysts estimate google sold around 100 million tablets. and then you have motorola, and i am hearing the mobile phones are not selling that well. last quarter they had $1 billion in losses, a negative margin of 28%. with the more stable set top box getting spin out, investors want to know the end game for motorola. >> thanks, john. ibm is out with q4 numbers after the bell today, three hours from now. the stock hit a bit of a peak in october, down 6% since then. today a fractional move to the upside. the street is looking for a gain of $5.25 a share. reven
.t. startups, and john baackes is also with us of new atlantic ventures which invests mostly in mobile technology and e-commerce. john, we'll start with you. how much of this decline had to do with concerns of the fiscal cliff at the end of last year? what do you think? >> the decline, bill, if you take a look at it, was completely represented in the clean tech sector and the life sciences sector. the sectors we invest in are software and internet. this was the best year, 2012, for software investments since 2001. it was the second best year for internet investments since 2001. so the total picture might look grim, but in the space of technology. software and internet, it's a good story. >> software and internet as it relates to health care, or software and internet across the board, john? >> software and internet across the board. >> very interesting. yeah, go ahead. >> life sciences was down. double digits. clean tech was down almost 40%. the reason those two were down, bill, to your question about the fiscal cliff. >> right. >> is they both depend on government policy. clean tech to
businesses need to consider all stakeholders, not just shareholders. john mackey is the co-founder and co-c.e.o. of whole foods market. he's author of "conscious capitalism: liberating the heroic spirit of business". john, why is concentrating on shareholders a myth as you call it? >> i don't know if concentrating on shareholders is a myth. i mean, most companies do concentrate on their shareholders. it's just not the best business strategy. because you have an interdependent stakeholder system where you need to create value for all of the stakeholders, and that will also create value for your investors or shareholders. for example, at whole foods market, we have to create value for our team members. if they're happy and fulfilled in their work, then they will take care of our customers better and that will result in them being happy alcohol result in the investors being happy. happy team members result in happy cut can mers which result in happy investors. they're all interdependent on one another. >> tom: is that the priority you put the stakeholders in, employees over customers over sh
john stumpf is here in the house for an interview you'll see only right here next. we're talking everything from earnings to housing to lending to his stock which is up, 2i the way, 20% over last year. we'll be right back with john stumpf. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. >>> welcome back. so where did this rally come from today? bob pisani wraps it all up right now. over to you, bob. >> banks and home builders, but very simple, maria. pretty good volume, 4-1 advancing to the declining stocks. the long-term picture we want to look up. five-year highs on the s&p 500. made it. dow did not make, it by the way, the dow jones industrial average shy of the five-year high. mid-cap, historic high, russell 2000 historic highs and slickials strong for the start of the year. speaking of the start of the year, early to put this up. look, so far the s&
in algeria. first we go to onhto john harwo. >> we have a stance from house republicans they will put on the house floor next week and presumably pass it if they have done chir whip counts accurately. that is that the debt limit would be extended. it is now due to run out between february 15th and march 1st. now extended to april 15th with the condition that the house and senate both pass a budget. this is an effort to tweak the senate which has not passed a budget for the budget resolution the last couple of years. members' pay would be withheld if the budget does not pass. this does not include the debt limit extension. that is a boone to both parties because identifying those cuts is very, very difficult. especially if you're talking about the entitlement programs of medicare and social security. it is not likely that democrats will accept this approach but at least a step forward and gives people looking for a solution and looking no avoid the brinksmanship right up to the edge, the opportunity for a little bit of relief here, pending the reaction from the white house and senate d
, john donaldson, haverford vice president of fixed income. john, first on this move by what japan did, essentially the market was not too pleased. they didn't think japan went far enough in terms of its easing, in terms of what the fed is doing and, what europe is doing. what do you think move in general? >> i don't know about far snuff enough. thank you very much about having me on. i don't know far enough is primary concern as opposed to fast enough. they're talking about doing something out later this year, early next year, is in pretty sharp contrast to our fed where if they're buying securities, it is starting tomorrow, and when they talk about two years from now, they're talking about when they're easing might possibly end. so i think it is that not fast enough that is the market's concern today. lauren: right. moving a little bit closer to home, john, when the fed perhaps, maybe this year, ends our bond buying, our qe, what happens then to the bond market? >> it may be not as much of a shock but clearly with bonds priced where they are in treasurys and agencies in particular, t
's leadership. so, you're negative. the market is not. whole foods chief john macky, a little hot water after comments he made in a radio interview on obamacare. what he said, technically speaking it's more like fascism, socialism is where the government owns the means of production, in fascism the government doesn't own the means of production, but they control it and that's what's happening with our health care program. mackie says he regrets using the word fascism and clarified on fox and friends. >> mostly i was trying to describe obamacare, free enterprise capitalism which allows value tri exchange between businesses and individuals and it's the basis for prosperity in america, and allows innovation, creativity, freedom of choice. we're moving away from that, so, trying to let people see that that's probably not going to be as effective as if capitalism itself was allowed to work in the marketplace. stuart: that's interesting, government controlled health care. let's bring in da doctor, a specialist, as i said, you're a specialist, okay? under obamacare, what hoops do patients have to ju

mark zandy, former economic adviser to john mccain. this is generally agreed to by most economists, for every dollar invested in infrastructure, you get $1.57 back into the american economy. so you're not just putting a dollar in, you are getting the american economy going, but putting people to work. buy food, pay taxes, support their families, and build for tomorrow's disaster. putting in place the infrastructure that is hardened, that is protected, eliminating the potential in this specific case of flooding of the subway systems in new york city. i know that you talked about doing this in your area for the storm. you may want to pick that back and i want to come back and talk by my own district in california. . mr. tonko: people have said that there is a need for government, they want effective government, efficient government. well, i think when we look at some of the data that are collected, representative garamendi, it is important for us to acknowledge that as we rebuild in our areas that have been damaged by mother nature, you don't just replace, you need to improve upon th

of the new jersey assembly. john, listen, there's an exodus out of new jersey. what's going on? >> for ten years before governor christie took over, the democrats ran our state, they raised everything, property taxes went up. charles: that would explain the ten year exodus that we have seen from the census bureau and others but they are still leaving. >> they are leaving people because don't decide to leave next month, there was a process where people said we want to leave, they sell their house and they go. chris christie's turned that around. we have the slowest escalation on property taxes in 20 years now. you are going to see a reversal when people realize new jersey is changing. >> how do you think new jersey is going to be able to compete with states though that are now talking about eliminating the state income tax? that's very sort of encouraging to people like me. i want to sort of run over there. if i could move over there today, i would, louisiana, they are talking about this, how are states like new jersey and new york going to compete with that >> the governor proposed an inco
will talk about that, but chris christie is getting all the attention, but john avalon wrote about how the number of minority governments at the republican party far exceeds the democrats. not just because of ethnicity, but these people like bobby jindal, suzanne martinez, they're doing great things in their state. if you look at the help of the red states, the safety of the red states, our party problem is we have a very deep bench and we don't go to those players. connell: we were talking with the "wall street journal" making his point in a column widely read now is the g.o.p. needs a spokesperson to put on tv to speak for the party. but brings up a good point, there are messages in there for the republicans that i am sure would be very appealing to people but not a lot of them get out. what do you make of that from your site? >> if we're talking about the things addressed in the republican retreat, this is pretty basic stuff. if you have to be told not to say stupid stuff about rape, that is pretty basic. don't insult women or minorities, told lef let's not t our country into defaul
and john boehner. they are the leaders and they are trying to do too much by being both the leader and the spokesman for the party. connell: you want someone who is not an elected official. dagen: ironically enough in williamsburg. connell: you know a lot of people inside the party and i would say you have some influence of writing in the journal's editorial page at least what people are thinking about. is this something that they are considering? >> i think it is something that they should consider. i, frankly, connell, and getting a tremendous e-mail response saying they just want someone to speak for them. a voice that is identifiable and articulate their ideas. they could speak -- the republicans have good policy, but they simply are not being articulated and publicize in a way that the public could be forced to come to grips with. dagen: again, with the use of twitter, how can the republicans take advantage of the kind of rapid fire way because connell and i both, the first thing we look at in the morning is twitter four hour news. republicans seem absent in many ways. are the
stay there and get some more commentary on these numbers. steve liesman is here on set. john writing is chief economist at rdq economics. steve a lot of numbers to run through. >> yeah. >> retail sales a little better than expected. bad news is the empire state numbers. >> we've had weakness there, and the weakness remains, and the problem i'm having right now, becky, is the drawing an income chart of the two guys on my side and this big dip that would happen with me in the middle here. i'm incredibly focused on that. >> leverage. >> i'd be part of the mean. vehicle sales had a good month. this is the number that will give us the final tally on the christmas sales. and at least for a moment, settle the debate. that's before the revisions. over what kind of christmas it was. and it's not looking too shabby. 0.4 revision for november. trying to look at the core sales were 0.6. so that's not too bad, either. and then 0.6 as well in december. the ppi under control, 1.3% year over year. rick said. and maybe just bring in john riding here. john, two things. one is the how good a christmas
. now let's go to the other house. let's read, and i'll read for you, what senator john cornyn said. he said, we will raise the debt ceiling. he doesn't say may. he says we will. of course he is in the senate. we're not going to default on our debt. both of these gentlemen are on the right track. i personally think in my emotional state i might not have wanted to increase the debt ceiling but i think politics of course we can't be naive. the president has a very big platform for his strategy. he has the bully pulpit. and i think that some media are calling this a retreat on the debt ceiling. to me the only retreat in the equation is williamsburg, virginia. but i do think that now we can concentrate on what andy brenner and i were talking about yesterday and that is march 1st the sequester. march 27th the continuing resolution because we haven't seen both houses pass a budget and i think these issues are much easier to extract from the democrats/the white house because the short-term bumps are going to put a lot of pressure and lot of press in my opinion on the main issue and the main is
is the vice president at usaa investments. he joins me now from san antonio for a fox business exclusive. john, it is always good to speak with you. i'm courses you, you know -- i'm curious, we've had the big marks, especially the s&p hitting multiyear highs, but you say there's reason to be concerned. what is it? >> we have seen the equity market outperform the economy over the last couple of years due to the large monetary and fiscal stimulus, but recently we have seen earnings decelerate and our concern is just what's going to happen to top of line revenue growth to companies and then in particular their forward guidance, particularly for those companies who are exposed to consumer spending because of the recent 2% payroll tax hike. cheryl: okay. so do you think at this point as we look at the economy versus the markets and in particular the housing sector, which many analysts and many economists point to as being such a good thing, if the housing market does not have that true, true rebound in 2013, do you think that that is going to affect market performance? >> yes, we do. we're looking
of the political obstacles, how do you go about banning a weapon that may not have a clear-cut name? joe johns has been looking into this part of the story for us. it's getting a little complicated. so explain what you're finding out, joe. >> wolf, it's being called the biggest push in a generation on gun control but a lot of the ideas the president put forth yesterday has been kicked around since the 1990s and frankly in a lot of ways it's not clear what the white house wants to do and how they want to do it. the president's gun safety proposals sound ambitious but policywise it's difficult to assess without more details, starting with this. >> restore a ban on military-style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. >> which would be illegal is impossible to know until the white house defines assault weapon. when a ban passed in 1994, it came down to what it looked like. for example, do they have folding or telescoping stocks and grips and so on. officials admit it was far from perfect. >> it was hard to enforce it. as a result many people did that and, you know, he have vaded the law
channel retailers. fantastic figures from the likes of john dose, very, very good, indeed. >> if you didn't have that good multi channel line or you weren't very good online, then you weren't going to suffer. >> it's much, much more challenging at the moment. you can generalize, consumers are much more selective. they don't give second best the benefit of the doubt. it would be interesting to know, for instance, how those changes we've got -- >> i have to say, if i had to pick a word to describe retail sales and the general economy, it would be sporadic. it doesn't seem there's a consistent message, a theme, a story. am i missing something? >> i think it's fair. i think we saw in 2012 very, very slow improvements in consumer confidence and retail sales are up compared to other areas of consumer spending were weak. and i think it will be much the same next year. but have a look at the rest of europe. >> so you would rather buy the uk companies? >> well, i don't make share price recommendations. but the uk economy at the moment subject to no euro meltdowns. >> although we have had similar s
house. dennis: joining us from both sides of the aisle, republican congressman john flemming of louisiana and democratic congressman john yarmouth of kentucky. congressman fleming, yarn and ardent proponent of gun rights. what did you think of the president's announcement today? >> beyond that, i am also a physician. i served as a coroner. and i have dealt with mental health quite a bit in my career. i think these executive actions or orders sounds like beefing up law enforcement. i have no problem with that. the devil is in the details. on the other hand what the president is calling for is again things we have done in the past, going after the guns, going after the criminals and, after assault weapons. the focus needs to be people doing the shooting. every case where we have mass murder we find a severely mentally ill mentally deranged person. we need to do a lot more in beefing up our mental health and also be more proactive in keeping people away from weapons and in this case these were legally purchased weapons he got from his mother. his mother should not have allowed h
a week causing farmers to shell out millions in profit protection. our next guest says one of them. john is a citrus farmer and he has 6,000 acres of citrus crops and he joins us from riverside, california. john, i know you have been losing a lot of sleep out there. you know, trying to save your crops. talk to me a little bit for us eaters as opposed to you growers, what is the damage like? i know you have an orange there you can show us. what is your you're protecting against? >> well, you know, oranges, when they freeze will, you can cut ice in the morning. but the segments will start breaking apart if they're frozen of the just a question of how, what percentage of these segments freeze. sometimes you get one or two. they will actually, could even heal. but at this point we don't know how bad, how bad it is going to be. we know we have some damage. we just don't know what degree the fruit will be damaged. melissa: if it does freeze, is that permanent damage or like you said there's a possibility that it heals and how do you sort of promote that? what can you do? >> well, you know, dep
